Overview

UK-based Classical Ballet and Opera House presents Sleeping Beauty – a spectacular fairy-tale.

 

Every child’s favourite fairy-tale, Sleeping Beauty is the classic story of love and innocence, mystery, and magic set to Tchaikovsky’s sublime score.

 

For the first time in the UK, this ballet company is from Moldova with dancers from different countries, including Ukraine who are currently joining the company in growing numbers.

 

Stunning choreography, sumptuous costumes, and wonderful sets form the fantasy world in which the Lilac Fairy struggles against the evil Carabosse. Outline based on the fairy-tale by Charles Perrault, the Sleeping Beauty tells of Princess Aurora, cursed at her christening by the evil Carabosse to prick her finger one day on a spindle and die. Thanks to the timely intervention of the Lilac Fairy, she doesn’t die, but sleeps for a hundred years. Woken by a prince, who has battled through the Enchanted Forest to reach her, they marry at a ceremony attended by nursery rhyme characters like Puss in Boots and all the other forest creatures.

 

There are no scores more successful in supporting the full range of ballet than those by Tchaikovsky. Highlights include the Famous ‘Rose Adagio’ when Princess Aurora is introduced to four princes.

 

This ravishing production of Sleeping Beauty is certain to leave you refreshed, relaxed, and alert. It shimmers like an exquisite dream. The Sleeping Beauty is also a ballet that all can enjoy, even the very young.

 

Music by Pyotr I. Tchaikovsky, featuring a live Orchestra with over 30 musicians.
